Jurassic World Set Photo Teases The Return Of The T-Rex

Thanks to some leaked details and a special interview with director Colin Trevorrow, we now know a good bit about the plot of the upcoming epic Jurassic World, but what still remains a secret is the exact kind of dino action we will be seeing. The franchise has regularly trotted out all kinds of weird species, but we also expect a good dose of our classic favorites. This afternoon Trevorrow has teased one giant beast from the latter category.

While the Tweet you see above doesn't feature a very descriptive caption - simply reading "Nights." - this is definitely an example of a picture speaking a thousand words. We still don't get to see any dinosaurs in the picture, but that shadow pattern certainly looks a hell of a lot like the jaw of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, does it not? And while I don't want to read too much into it (because really anything could be going on), it's interesting that the shadow is being cast next to what appears to be a public bench and a streetlight. Perhaps the king of the dinosaurs has breached containment and is on the attack?

Based on a script by Colin Trevorrow and Pat Crowley, Jurassic World picks up 22 years after the first movie in the series and, amazingly enough, finds that the idea for Jurassic Park has actually worked. Chris Pratt will be playing a behavioral researcher who is studying Velociraptors and their relationship with humans. The Guardians of the Galaxy star is joined in the cast by a fantastic ensemble that includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, BD Wong, and Omar Sy. As the image implies, production is still very much going on, with some filming even being done at an abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans.

The production of Jurassic World has been surprisingly open since filming started, with multiple official photos showing up online in addition to Trevorrow's active Twitter account. But when will we actually get our first look at one of the dinosaurs they are playing around with? Obviously they're dealing with a certain amount of practical effects (the shadow proves that), so why not give us a sneak peek at what to expect? Surely all the special effects will look better after a visual effects touch-up, but the people crave dinosaurs! Who knows, maybe we'll get our first look at San Diego Comic-Con next month. For now we'll just have to settle for this 3D theater standee that SuperHeroHype found at the Licensing Expo 2014 in Las Vegas.
